Primers, in general, aren't very good for your face. They're great in providing a moisture barrier to keep your foundation from soaking into your skin, but they aren't very good for your skin. Look at your favorite primer that you currently use: I'm willing to bet you that one of the main ingredients is either silicone, dimethicone, or some other silicone derivative in it. Yes, they are good at keeping things from soaking into your skin, but that's because they block your pores. Would you want to put Vaseline on your face? Silicone and it's derivatives essentially acheive the same end - they prevent your skin from breathing. What's worse, is that they've been linked to breast cancer. Can you say, "no thanks"?
We did just the opposite. We've created a new primer that is actally beneficial for you. Made of only the finest and highest end ingredients, our primer is composed of pure silk powder, natural pearl powder, and allantoin. Pearl powder has long been an ancient Chinese skin care use. Not only does it contain essential amino acids and calcium, it acts as an anti-inflammatory and aids in reducing redness, helps reduce hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tones, and smooths the texture of your skin while moisturizing it as well. The allantoin, extracted from the comfrey root, stimulates growth of healty tissue, has soothing and healing properties, and is an anti-irritant. Pure silk powder also has essential amino acids, and like pearl powder, absorbs excess oils while moisturizing at the same time (perfect for combination skin). Silk reflects UVA and UVB rays, providing additional protection from sun damage.
Our Silk & Pearl Powder primer reduces the visibility of pores and fine lines, leaves your skin feeling as smooth as a baby's bottom. It is available in two formulas: Normal-Dry skin, and Normal-Oily skin. If you are unsure which skin type you are, it is recommended to use the Normal-Oily skin with our Skin Smoothing foundation formula (otherwise, it may feel a bit too heavy), and the Normal-Dry skin with our regular formula. Either can be used with the regular formula with Pure Silk added.
Not only does this Silk & Pearl primer acheive the visible results for which you're using a primer to begin with, but it is so nourishing and good for your skin that I've taken to wearing a layer to bed. After one week, I already notice a significant difference in how smooth the texture of my skin is!
